If you were to sift through each of our mp3 lists or album shelves there wouldn't be much in commonperhaps it's the few commonalities that bind us together at the seam; that branch out and allow for such a contrasting sound. ~ Vocalist/Guitarist Chris Hearn
Starting as a hobby with five friends from Acadia University in the fall of 2000; Crashing Blue have developed their music far past the early scratchy recordings of Shiver. With over thirty years of combined music study from a variety of musical disciplines and spurred by first place finishes in the Acadia University Battle of the Bands in two of the past three years, the group continues to work hard to create a truly unique sound they can call their own: technically exciting and lyrically powerful. Establishing an early strategy of playing for various charitable events, Crashing Blue's sound was able to be to be spread to a large demographic, supporting local and national charity in the process. By controlling the pace of their songwriting, the group has had time to focus on creating an energetic, exciting show as well as perfect their art of writing great music.
We've made the most of the last couple years; improving our confidence on stage and consistently writing challenging material. We're at a point now where we're finally content with what we've createdwe're ready to share it. ~ Bassist Dwayne Henley
Crashing Blue has now set their sights on the captive radio audience and live music scene, hoping to gain airplay and stage time in and beyond the Halifax metro area. Future plans involve continuing to maintain an aggressive promotional strategy with the completion and distribution of an upcoming independent EP release early in 2003 as well as continuing to entertain audiences by doing what they do best: play live.
Crashing Blue transformed the Kipawo Arts Centre into a ninety minute musical roller coaster. Not one of those scary loopty-loop roller coasters that make you feel nauseous, but one of those exhilarating roller coasters that leave you delighted and wanting more. ~ Morgan Taylor, Music Reviewer, The Athenaeum
